Old Sloop Presents
a performing arts series at the First Congregational Church of Rockport, Massachusetts
The Old Sloop has returned to live performance with an expanded mission and a new name! Our host church presents occasional concerts in the sanctuary, usually featuring classical music or jazz. We have long wanted to broaden the coffeehouse offerings to include music other than folk. The church’s programming has been hampered by the lack of a means to sell tickets or promote events, things the coffeehouse already does. We have joined the two programs to solve several problems and exploit new opportunities. The combined entity has the new name Old Sloop Presents.
COVID-19 precautions: The Rockport Board of Health has rescinded the last of its COVID advisories, and the Old Sloop has relaxed its precautions. Masks are recommended but not required, and vaccination or negative test is no longer required. Performances will include an intermission, and limited homemade desserts and drinks will be available. However, performances will continue to be in the sanctuary, which is much larger than Fellowship Hall and provides space for attendees to distance. And, importantly, if you have a ticket and don’t feel well or suspect you have been exposed to COVID-19, PLEASE DON’T COME! We will gladly refund your ticket purchase.
